Casa Rural CP/MA/00510
A perfect place to enjoy all that Andalucia has to offer. An award-winning B&B with pool, beautiful views and great food. Rooms have private access, air conditioning ensuite, tea/ coffee making facilities, a small fridge, and WIFI.
Casa Colina is a renovated 170 year old farm house situated between the towns of Riogordo and Benamargosa. It is surrounded by fields of olive and avocado trees and enjoys stunning views of the 14th century Moorish fortress town of Comares. Ideal for exploring Andalucia or relaxing by the pool.
The Lemon suite was the only original bedroom and as such has walls of over 1 meter thick which of course are not flat, smooth or straight but which has bags of character. It has a double bed and an ensuite bathroom with shower. It can be made into a family suite with the Orange suite as there is a connecting door with can be unlocked to make a four/five person suite. The room benefits from a fridge with coffee and tea making facilities plus a hairdryer, air conditioning and heating for the cooler months. The room shares a terrace with the Orange suite.
At Casa Colina we offer a continental style breakfast along with our own eggs cooked to order. The house special is Revueltos con chorizo y espinaca (Spanish style scrambled eggs with chorizo and spinach) and is 5€ per person. We also give our guests the option to dine with us 5 evenings a week. We offer a set 3 course evening meal which is inspired by Paul and Niki's time in Spain. We only use free range meat and locally produced vegetables where available, the evening meal comes with Niki's homemade bread that is baked daily and is finished off with a complimentary chupito often one of our homemade creations, currently in progress is lemoncello, cherry vodka and plum vodka! This currently costs 22€ per head. For the other two nights we offer a pre-prepared BBQ which guests can enjoy on their own terrace.
From the B&B it is easy to visit all that Andalucia has to offer, with Granada an 80 minute drive and Seville 120 minutes. The nearest beach is 30 minutes away and there are many miles of coastline that you can explore.
All our guests have access to the swimming pool and sun loungers along with the hammocks and all the surrounding terrace areas.
Interaction with guests
At Casa Colina we like to offer our guests a unique blend of friendliness and privacy. Breakfast (5€ per person) is served on the sun terrace in the warmer months (usually March to October) and in our indoor dining room in the cooler months.
We offer daily lunches for those who prefer to stay by the pool, you can choose between a freshly prepared sandwich made with wonderful olive and sundried tomato bread or a selection of homemade tapas . This can be ordered in the morning and will be delivered to your room for you to enjoy at your leisure.
Five times a week (twice a week in the low season) we offer a 3 course set evening menu where we prepare Spanish influenced meals made with local produce and free range meats (22€ per person). The evening meal is served at our communal dining table where we eat with our guests. This gives us a chance to share our experiences of living in Spain - it's also a great opportunity for everyone to discuss their daily activities and offer advice on places of interest they may have visited that day.
On the two nights that we do not serve an evening meal (weather permitting) we offer our guests a pre-prepared BBQ pack which they can enjoy on their private terrace. This will be delivered to your room in a cool box in the early evening (the pack includes a selection of meat, fish, salads and bread along with either a bottle of house wine or 4 beers, 30€ per couple).
We have been open as a B&B since 2010. To check out what our previous guests have thought about their stay with us look us up on Tripadvisor.
Smoking is permitted at Casa Colina but we ask our guests to only do so on the outside terraces.
